My tales this month began, where else, but on the streets. Streets that some fools, are believing, are paved with gold.
I almost believe in this myth, when I'm walking down Bond Street. Though when I turned off BS for Hanover Square, reality kicked, when I ran into Mark Hayes Vidal Sassoon International Creative Director.
Mark told me "my time is divided, travelling the world, coaching, teaching and inspiring my staff & students, to create new and innovative hair styles. After over 30 years of working for VS these are his just rewards.

Here, I caught up with Westminster College student Robbie Anson Duncan, swanning around in ex graduates Rachel James menswear coat. www.racheljamesltd.com
Robbie informed me "Rachel has commissioned me, to design a limited edition bespoke range of sterling silver and laser cut statement pendants". I can't wait to see these items on her runway show.
Back on the pavement, this time rag trade side, Great Titchfield Street. There I had a catch up with old pal, DJ & record producer Goldie, who was with one of his contemporaries & Andy C.
Rusty Egan celebrating with the boys from Spandau Ballet as they receive their PRS for Music Heritage award at the legendary Blitz Club in London's Soho.
Spandau Ballet unveiled a plaque in front of special guests at the site of their first gig in 1979, The Blitz Club! Gary Kemp said at the presentation: "We are honoured to have received this award from PRS for Music. The Blitz was an incredible melting pot of music, fashion and creativity.
"It's not just Spandau Ballet that owe our career to that place at that moment in time. Musical icons such as Chris Blackwell and David Bowie all came to The Blitz to check out what was going on, the place was that important."
PRS chair, Guy Fletcher said: "It is an honour to present Spandau Ballet with the PRS for Music Heritage Award today, at what was truly their birthplace. The Blitz Club was the beating heart of the New Romantics movement that propelled some of British music's most successful artists to stardom.
"Spandau Ballet are currently riding a fresh wave with the release of their new album and film, and it's very fitting that we should bring it all back to where it began today - what a story."
The PRS for Music Heritage Award was established in 2009, recognising important live music venues where artists launched their careers.
Sir Elton John, Blur, Soul II Soul, Faithless and Queen are previous recipients.
